@shawn30: Isn't it ironic that the beginning of a PS4 unboxing video shows a toilet?

#7 Posted by jimmypsn (4425 posts) -

The workmanship of the PS4 is very suspect and lackluster. Most important is that PS4 are overheating and freezing.

Lol... sounds about right.

The Xbox One will bring Balance to the Force. The PS4, not so much :)

I highly doubt all PS4s are actualyl like that, that would just be weird

Wonder Woman cringes:

"I see he has orange fingers. That means there's a Cheeto stuck under the PS4. Clean your coffee table, mortal."

I can't wait to buy my official PS4 pro level-pads. Maximize your levelability!... While I think this may be a glitch, or if it turns out to be a technical design flaw, the problem is easily fixed with those little rubber sticky pads. Available now.

@shawn30: I wonder if that will really matter -or at all- when playing your games.

Of course it won't matter. This is just for shits and giggles. But again, the PS4 is not balanced. Its is the WobbleStation :)

maybe the surface isn't even

#19 Edited by GravityX (865 posts) -

@shawn30: Are we sure it's not the table?

#20 Posted by freedomfreak (44965 posts) -

Yeah, it does seem wobbly. It's because of something at the bottom of the system. It's explained in the video.

Still, doesn't really matter. Looking forward to the Quick Looks. Already watched the Resogun one.

#21 Posted by darkangel115 (2411 posts) -

now is anyone gonna remix it into a mileystation and make it twerk?

not taking a shot at PS, its not a big deal, just making a joke

This video reminds me of the first time I came to gamespot.....I think back in '03 or '04 when Jeff, Ricardo and Ryan M. went to Japan for the release of the PSP.

#28 Edited by cmat35 (89 posts) -

Cancelling preorder now....or maybe I could just steal the little rubber piece off my work computer and stick it on the other side of the PS4?

Has anyone actually laughed at any of your posts yet?

Maybe they added the wobble function for extra air cooling since the overheating fiasco.

Curious. It seems there isn't even any glue residue where you'd expect to find a fourth rubber foot. Perhaps whoever programmed the automated glue squirter machine had a brain fart that day.

If this turns out to be a mistake with every launch playstation 4, it's embarrassing, but hardly the biggest ownage in the world. Something more dramatic will happen.

Wonder Woman sighs.

#34 Posted by shawn30 (4367 posts) -

The PS4 is simply out of balance. It is a small thing for certain, like a man who has one leg longer than another *nods*

@always_explicit The answer to your question is no.

It's not the table or feet, when he turns it over there are no feet but the LED strip is slightly raised and there's a bump at the other end too which is why it rocks. It's not a big deal but it's quite odd that they wouldn't have some little feet to keep it even. They also said putting cables in can be annoying because of the slant, means you can't see the ports unless you're behind the console.

#38 Posted by good_sk8er7 (4325 posts) -

That sucks!! I'll probably be standing mine vertically anyways though.

#48 Posted by GoldenElementXL (4295 posts) -

In the video Jeff says that the wobble is something he has noticed before. It's kind of crazy that something like that made it past all of the R&D. The console is beautiful and yet it doesn't sit flat?...... WTF!

Lawls. The holy hardware company

#50 Edited by lhughey (4329 posts) -

Lets be reasonable guys. There has got to be an issue with console. There is no way that something like that could be over seen by Sony and the reviewers who have had a chance to play with it. This would cause disks to scratch or cause more wear on the motor that rotates the disk.

But keep it up, I am enjoying the puns. :)
